Barcelona defender Gerard Pique will not be attending Lionel Messi’s wedding this summer due to a personal problem between his partner Shakira and Messi’s wife-to-be, Antonella Roccuzzo.
The Spain defender has not been invited to the wedding because his singer partner Shakira, is not in good terms with Roccuzzo, who will officially become Messi’s wife in the summer after having two kids for the Barca superstar.
The issue between the pair reportedly stems from a problem Messi's fiancee, Antonella Roccuzzo, has with how Pique began his relationship with pop star Shakira, according to Spanish newspaper, El Pais.

Roccuzzo was close friends with the Spaniard's former girlfriend Nuria Tomas and was unhappy with how the couple ended the relationship.
However, it is believed the issue has not affected Messi and Pique's relationship on or off the pitch
Pique met Colombian singer Shakira when he was still in a relationship with Tomas, when he appeared in her music video Waka Waka, the official song of the 2010 World Cup.
He told TV3 in October: “I met Shakira in Madrid, when we were preparing for the 2010 World Cup, and after appearing in the Waka Waka video.
“It all started when we were together in South Africa and I wrote to her. She was already there because she sang in the opening ceremony and I asked her what the weather was like.
“It is the typical stupid question, and the normal answer is to tell me to bring a jacket.
“But she started telling me what the weather was like in every single moment and it got to the point where I told her we would have to get to the World Cup final to see her again - she was singing at the final.”
Messi does not yet have a date confirmed for his wedding with Roccuzzo, but it is rumoured it will be in the middle of June.
